B is for …

My second blog about common aliments that Massage or Reflexology can help is about ‘Backache’.

Backache can be caused by a number of different factors for example stress, exercise, bad posture, injury etc.

Research has shown that regular massage can help with reducing pain and stiffness and once you have a honest consultation with your massage therapist about your back pain, they can adjust the massage to your back accordingly.

Back pain can sometimes be caused by referral pain from your neck and shoulders and the massage therapist may work on these areas too. But depending on the cause of the backache, the massage pressure can be varied.

For example stress from heavy lifting in the gym, may require a deeper massage while pain from an injury may require lighter and more gentle strokes.

Stay holistic 🙂
